Leveraging the Power of Women to Create a More Peaceful World
Can human suffering be the catalyst for extraordinary change and fuel movements to create a more just and equitable civil society?
Join Dan Cardinali and Lynne Twist, co-founder of The Pachamama Alliance and award-winning author of The Soul of Money, for a stirring conversation with Jody Williams -– awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997 for her work to ban landmines through the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, which shared the Prize with her.
Named in 2004 in Forbes Magazine’s first annual list of the world’s 100 most powerful women, Jody has been a lifelong advocate of self-determination, human, and civil rights.
You’ll get to hear from and ask Jody about the origin of her grassroots activism and why peace is not a “utopian vision.” Her dogged pursuit of sustainable peace and justice will re-energize your commitment to a more equitable civil society.
